Travellers' Choice
Nestled within the old-world charm of Auckland’s High Street – amid lanes populated with fashion designers, bespoke tailors, barbers and coffee houses – lies the delightfully Art Deco styled Hotel DeBrett. A luxury Auckland boutique hotel just minutes walk from the bustle of the Britomart, lower Queen Street and Auckland’s iconic waterfront. All 25 rooms – each with a distinct personality – are a chic mix of mid-century modern furniture fused with contemporary comforts designed to tickle the senses. The hotels signature restaurant DeBretts Kitchen, specialises in simple, elegant food where menus are seasonal, creative and attuned to local produce, and the iconic Housebar, resplendent in elegant Art Deco detailing, serves delightfully imaginative cocktails with panache.

Stayed here for a birthday treat. The corner room was high and light with beautiful deco furnishings. The bed was extremely comfortable and everything had been thought through. Breakfast was also delicious. Can’t wait to stay again.

Hotel DeBrett is a small boutique hotel in the middle of Auckland city. We had never stayed here before but now think we will make this our hotel of choice from now on. It is gorgeous from the hotel bar to the restaurant to the rooms which are beautifully appointed. The greeting from reception when we arrived was warm and friendly. We felt truly welcomed. We only stayed the one night but can’t wait to come and stay again.

I stay here most weeks for business. My favourite Auckland city hotel. Comfortable well furnished rooms, great bar and restaurant with excellent food and friendly staff. The hotel is located off high street so very close to shops, restaurants and amenities.
